Golf team wins

Bowdoin match

By Erik S. Norton

BRUNSWICK, ME -- The MIT varsity golf team won the two-day Bowdoin Invitational Tournament last weekend with a score of 642, beating the University of Maine, Merrimack College, Boston University and St. Ansolm's College. Another 11 teams competed in the tournament.

Heath Hawlder '94 captured one medal, with 73 points on Friday and 77 on Saturday. Captain Wataru Yamagouchi '92 received 86-81 points, Erik S. Norton 85-77, Frank C. Popp 88-83 and Edward L. Harris 85-83.

Prior to the tournament, the team showed great promise in a 406-406 tie with strong Division II school Bentley College. Though this match was lost in overtime play, it was evident that the team was playing well. Coach Barry is hoping to improve on last year's 12-9 record.

Erik S. Norton is the manager of the golf team.
